Meet Your Trainer
Hi! I'm Dominika.

As a mom and dog parent, I've experienced first-hand how worrisome dog-child interactions can be.

But when you understand dog behavior and have a solid foundation of preparation and training, you can create an environment that's safe and happy for everyone.

As a certified dog trainer, I've helped thousands of families do just that, and I'd love to help you, too.
